why does milk change case?
When you negate the sentence, the thing being possessed needs to be in the genitive case.
У меня есть яблоко → У меня нет яблока
so what is the genitive case for plurals
Would "They have no milk" be an acceptable translation in this case?
Спасибо. I was obviously uncertain, but had already answered with another excepted string of words.
Accepted Not much difference in pronunciation, just to confuse people :-)
Ah, cool. :D
I dont understande how or when to use них
Них (they) is the same as неё (she) or него (he), тебя (you), меня (I). All of them are genitive cases :)
They need some milk lol
них ? I thought "they" was они !?
Is них the genitive for они ?
Technically их is the genitive form but when using preposition у, the н is added in front of их because it is difficult to pronounce the у and и sounds one after the other.
I wish they'd explain this in the tips and tricks. Confusing!
Okey dokey thanks !
